Fixing system for wooden buildings in seismic areas
In the event of an earthquake, with normal systems, the hold-down does not absorb energy, causing the failure of anchors, screws or nails. However, if the hold-down deformed and collaborated together with the anchors and screws, it could absorb the seismic stresses to avoid their failure. This is the innovative concept introduced by Friulsider, where the ductility of the hold-down is guaranteed by the "controlled deformation stretch length".
Thus was born the SHD Kit, the fixing system for wooden buildings in seismic areas, in combination with ATS-evo or KEM H.
An absolute novelty from Friulsider, your fixing factory!
